Auburn headache. It’s a condition from which many people suffer. Cervicogenic and
tension-type headaches are a couple of the more commonly
talked about types. The cervicogenic headache is associated
with issues with the cervical disc, facets, and joints.
The tension-type headache is associated with neck muscles brought on by stress or peculiar
head positioning. Both headache types tend to respond
to gentle, safe stretching type treatment like Cox® Technic used at
Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C..
SOURCE OF TENSION-TYPE HEADACHE: Neck Muscle, Stress,
Tension type headache is noted as
the second most common health concern around the
globe. A recent review of published studies for its treatment
found that manual joint mobilization techniques, supervised
physical therapy, acupuncture, psychological care, and patient education were
as beneficial for reducing headache frequency, enhancing
quality of life, reducing pain intensity, and decreasing
stress symptoms. (1) Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. welcomes Auburn tension-headache
sufferers and their fellow cervicogenic headache sufferers.
SOURCE OF HEADACHE: Cervical Joint
Auburn chiropractic patients want to understand
the source of their headache. A recent
study noted how researchers utilized diagnostic
block testing to find the cervical spine joint source of the
headache. In general, the C2-3 level was the most common
source. In patients whose principal complaint was headache
over neck pain, the C2-3 was the source for 62%, C1-2 for 7%,
and C3-4 for 6%. In patients whose neck pain was greater
than the headache, C2-3 was the source for 42%, lower cervical joints for 18%,
and C3-4 for 7%. (2) Not that every Auburn headache patient
must undergo this type of testing to be helped, but the results were enlightening for healthcare
providers to help diagnose and set up a
treatment plan for headache patients more beneficially.
MANUAL TREATMENT FOR HEADACHE
In a review of published clinical trials, researchers noted
that spinal manipulation was employed often
to manage cervicogenic headache. Spinal manipulation was effective, provided
superior, small, short term benefits for decreasing pain,
headache frequency, and related disability compared with other manual approaches.
(3) One relieving treatment referred to as SNAGs (sustained natural
apophyseal glides) has been explained in the medical literature.
In a placebo vs SNAG study, researchers explained how SNAGs
were good for pain reduction and neck disability decrease
as well as range of motion improvement for women with cervicogenic headache.
